The CarMax Foundation is also providing a $10,000 grant to the YMCA of the East Bay. Funding from the grant will help support the YMCA’s commitment to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Support for the YMCA also came at the recommendation of the Fremont associates.
